This technical diploma prepares graduates to work effectively in a Renal Dialysis center in a hospital or community based setting. The program is delivered through online lectures and learning activities as well as lab and clinical hands-on experiences. Renal Dialysis Technicians will perform their duties under the direct supervision of a RN and will be responsible for caring for patients receiving dialysis. Some responsibilities will include setting up dialysis equipment, preparing solutions, performing venipuncture and monitoring and caring for patients during dialysis. In addition, the technician will learn how to perform quality control checks on dialysis equipment, maintenance and cleaning of equipment, prepare and administer medications, perform vital sign checks, document and provide support to the patient during treatment. All first semester coursework will be completed entirely online through NTC's Virtual College, while second semester classes will be held in a face-to-face format.
